In My Father’s Skin. 2014


From the body of work entitled EXCAVATION, which is an ultra-personal exploration of one man’s fears and psychic wounds. It is, however, also a systemic consideration of the archetypal struggles we might all face. It’s a memoir of sorts, but a memoir that addresses universal issues in such a way that viewers may find themselves unexpectedly facing the reflection of their own struggles and pain.

EXCAVATION. 2014

Jason Covert

United States



In 1974 Jason Covert was born on the peninsula known as Cape Cod between a harbor and a marsh. Schooled in Connecticut at the liberal arts edifice of Connecticut College he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Covert worked for a time with the controversial Vermont based artist Barre Pinske before deploying himself unto the world at large. Having lived in Boston, San Francisco, Tasmania and Portugal Jason landed in New York City in 2000. Striving to become a recognized artist Covert found himself sleeping in doorways, his car and on the couches of friends and acquaintances for months on end. And so, it was not without considerable struggle that these past years have come and gone allowing Covert to enjoy a sizable clientele of collectors that literally span the globe.
